i can’t remember the last time i went on a vacation that was not related to a job or a social obligation. as grateful as i am for the awesome fact that i get to work out of my studio listening to npr accompanied by my hannah dog, it was crucial to get out of town recently. i needed to “recharge my cyrstals”. nature truly has an amazing ability to put things in perspective and freshen you up.
that said, we had the greatest time in ojai. we camped. i packed my camera + macro lense, a sketch book, a book (that i didn’t even end up reading – instead i read a book i picked up on the local scene and trails). my boyfriend taught me how to carve wood underneath the heavy shade of oaks in our campsite. our meals were lit up by candle light and stars. we hiked every single day and discovered watering holes where we swam and pranced around like life like versions of my caves. it was epic. my home and car still reek of the white white sage clippings – with each little sniff a memory enters my brain and reminds me… do this more often. escape. have an adventure.
